I hope you have all had a great week! Today I want to talk about the bees. Don’t worry. Not the birds and the bees. Just the bees. And what we can do to promote healthy environments that are safe and inviting for bees since their pollination is vital to humans having healthy produce.
This post was transferred over from my very first website back in 2015.
How do you feel about bees?
I myself have always been pretty afraid of bees. I have luckily never been stung by one which I’m very grateful for.
You’re probably thinking. No way, nope, and believe me to an extent I feel the same when it comes to bees.
What are they good for though? I mean, besides scaring us…
Bees are good for the normal things you’d think of. Like making honey and having a nice big bowl of honey nut cheerios. But they are also really important for food production overall.
Bee’s are constantly working hard to pollinate our crops of fresh fruits and vegetables. Humans and Livestock depend on a bee’s ability to pollinate our food. Without bees to spread seeds and pollinate our food, crops would die off. Not just flowers, the crops of the food variety too.
Even though they are so great and tiny, for some reason I am just so terrified of them. Or at least I used to be. Since becoming a mom and realizing that I set an example and also have the potential to pass on my irrational fears to my young, I have since mellowed down about how much they scare me. I follow the don’t bug it and it won’t bug you method. Unless they come tooooo close. Then I do a light swatting method.
None the less I think the fact that they are on the endangered species list is an extreme problem.
Today (many years ago) when I got home and checked my mail, just what I had been waiting for had finally come in.
My wildflower seeds from Honey Nut Cheerios. If you click the link Bring Back the Bee’s you can check out this awesome website filled with so much more information as to why bees are an important part of nature.
If you’re like me and you believe the need for bees is stronger than your anxiety of them than you can sign up to receive a pack of free wildflower seeds. (im no longer sure if this is still accurate.)
I’m not too sure how to conclude this one, in fact, I didn’t even know I was going to write this post until 5 minutes after I opened my laptop but here I am an entire post later.
I am so thankful to everyone who took the time to read this post and I hope everyone signs up for a pack of seeds.
